Settlers replace Korans burnt in mosque attack

A group of settlers visit Bayt Fajr mosque to show solidarity with their Palestinian neighbors after Monday’s vandalism incident.

 

Menachem Froman is a Rabbi with a noble heart. He did what was right.

 

Settlers on Tuesday gave new copies of the Koran to Palestinians in a Judean village whose mosque was burned in an attack blamed by Palestinians on settlers.

Several copies of Islam’s holy book were scorched in the arson attack and threats in Hebrew were scrawled on the wall of the mosque of Beit Fajjar early on Monday. Beit Fajjar is located eight kilometers south of Bethlehem.

My comment:

Jewish Settlers did wrong when they burnt a Mosque. It is very regrettable that there seems to be a radicalization among the settlers.

 

Israeli settlers gives Korans to Muslims in Judea.

 

But it is understandable. The racist policy of contruction freeze in Judea and Samaria has angered the Zionist Nationalist movement.

I rejoice reading the news rapport that a Jewish Rabbi had given the Muslims is this area new Koran’s. Both the Bible and the Koran should be read by all. Man has a free will to read, and to decide which of the two books that tells us the truth about God and His Messiah.

  1. I agree with most articles you write but to say we should not burn Koran’s I can only disagree with, in the scriptures we see that of the lesson of Kings were variuos Kings in Israel followed false Gods, the Lord hates false gosples and idols and is well pleases to see them burnt. He hasnt changed.
    The Koran is evil and false and should not be bought as a bargaining tool, the Lord tells us to Hate evil in all it forms. To detest even the clothing of the sinful. The Koran is a doctrine of false peace and a very violent book.
    When Our Lord returns he will burn and remove them from existence as his servants we should never appease this false gospel.
    It should be wrapped up, burnt and buried for it is detestable to the Lord our God.

    Shalom Alechiem

      Shalom, and welcome to this site.

      My reply:

      One of the most interesting books I have read, is Hitlers self biography ” Main Kampf”. How would I be able to fully understand the ideology and faith of the Nazi-leader, without looking into his mind?

      Only by reading the Koran, we can fully understand the evil of the teaching of Muhammad.

      The same principle apply to the Bible. You should not base your Biblical faith, only through a filter set by others who has read this book.

    2. Ask yourself this: Would Jesus burn a book?

      The word of God says:

      2 Timothy 2:24 The Lord’s bond-servant must not be quarrelsome, but be kind to all, able to teach, patient when wronged

  2. The guy walking in saying peace could also be the same one orchestrating the book burning. This rabbi seems to have ties with Hamas and Palestine. He is known for being a “peacemaker”, stunts like this improve his reputation, give him an opportunity to open his mouth. I wouldn’t trust him. He is preaching the same thing as the pope, religious unity and a false peace. What does truth have to do with lies, where can one find peace in that?

    1. Dear Ed and David.

      Shalom.

      People who live in mixed religious environments, must pay respect to people who have not found the truth about God. Threat them like a piece of China. If your brothers burn down a Mosque, do like Jesus did with the ear that Peter cut of the soldier. Put it back in place. This Roman probably got saved in that very moment. Many Muslims that see that we respect them, will be ready to debate faith with us. Some of them might even be ready to pick up the Bible and read.

      Trust the Holy Spirit, that backs up people who are ready to love their enemies.

      1. What’s that stuff he is wearing? The box on his head and straps on his hand?

        I don’t believe it’s the same as Jesus putting the ear back on the Roman soldier.

        This guy Froman doesn’t believe in Jesus. Also, He runs around making peace deals with the enemies, blaming the Israeli government for not surrendering to make his peace deals come true. That’s like treason.

        His vision is to live under Palestinian Authority. I think Israel could have that tomorrow if they wanted it.

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Menachem_Froman

        “But what matters is the holiness of this land. I prefer to live here in a future Palestine than leave to live in an Israeli state.”

        So He wants people to believe the land itself is Holy and that is what matters. Keeps him relevant as a Rabbi among men, opportunistically blaming his zionist brothers for stirring up trouble. The perfect anticedent for Hamas.

      2. Dear Ed.

        Shalom.

        I do not support this Rabbi. He is a promoter of the false peace.

        From Wikipedia:

        Froman supports making Jerusalem, the current capital of Israel, the religious capital of all three monotheistic faiths. In November 1999, he participated in a conference with dozens of international religious leaders including the Dalai Lama.

        (end of wiki).

        My point is that we should neither burn down Mosques, nor burn Korans. People who feel loved and respected by Christians, are more likely to debate with us and pick up a Bible.

        If anyone burn down the house of my Muslim neighbor, I am called to give him food and shelter. If you burn His Koran, I am willing to help Him to get a new one. I will also ask Him if he want to have a Bible in his house.

  3. This guys arguements is the same as most barstool prophets. If the world had listened to me all it’s problems would be solved already. The box on his head and straps on his hand are to give the appearance he knows things we don’t know about?

    Froman has commented:

    “ The root of the problem is Israeli and American arrogance. If Israeli governments had grasped these opportunities, not only would a great deal of bloodshed been spared and there would be a cease-fire between our two peoples, but there would have been no attack on the World Trade Center, and no American invasion of Iraq.[1]

    1. Dear Ed.

      Shalom.

      The box on the forehead of this Rabbi is a demand from from the law of Moses. It is a container, that holds the Words from the Great Commandment.

      Here is the instruction:

      Deuteronomy 11:18-19

      Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

      (end of scripture)

      I like your approach to a picture you have not seen before. We have to treat Orthodox Jews with respect, and not become arrogant. Paul warns us:

      Romans 11:19-21

      You will say then, “Branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in.” Granted. But they were broken off because of unbelief, and you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but be afraid. For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either.

      1. Interesting. Well too much respect and I might fail to notice the error of the ways of the orthodox Jews, or at least this one.
        Romans 2:29 But he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that which is of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter; and his praise is not from men, but from God.

        Maybe he wears those things to be noticed by men. Inside, in his heart he has not accepted Christ so therefore the truth is not in him, inwardly he is not a jew. Giving them praise for being Jews outwardly, doesn’t that reward them for putting their lives in peril, and having their natural branches cut off?

  4. How ironic that the settlers replace Korans burnt yet Bibles are not allowed into Saudi Arabia and some other Islamic countries.

    1. Dear Leonie.

      Shalom.

      Our love for our enemies, makes us different from the Muslims. The first step for a Muslim who wants to understand more about Christians, are often based on our gesture of love. That we are willing to bless our enemies. A Muslim have seen more than enough proof of Islam, not being willing to bless others.

      I do not support Saudi Arabian Islamic despotism against Jews and Christians. And I do not support anyone hating Muslims, mistreating them, burning Mosques and Korans.
